awards from advocacy competitions


One of the most fundamental responsibilities of an attorney is to advocate effectively for his or her client.

The School of Law's accomplished Moot Court and Mock Trial programs focus directly on developing critical oral and written advocacy skills. Team members learn how to write persuasively and how to make convincing oral presentations that will withstand intense scrutiny by the court. Through this incredible practical learning experience, Georgia Law students become powerful advocates.
